The San Francisco Giants won the World Series! They're the local baseball team, so everyone is super excited. They managed to defeat Detroit without losing a single game, too, which is very impressive!
As I mentioned last year, the Giants didn't even make the playoffs. In fact, here's a chart of their past five seasons:
2007-08: Didn't make the playoffs at all.
2008-09: Didn't make the playoffs at all.
2009-10: World Series Champions!
2010-11: Didn't make the playoffs at all.
2011-12: World Series Champions!
So apparently, whenever the Giants are in the playoffs, they become the World Series Champions. Good to know!
